A lesson for Ehlaina

5/24/2012

Ehlaina was not happy when she came home yesterday so I had a talk with her. She told me she had to apologize to Sophia that day for hurting her feelings. That didn't sound like something Ehlaina would do, so I kept digging for details.

动物园之行

5/21/2012

上周六晚上,我和老公去了一场音乐会,女儿们在家,找了一个邻居帮忙照看。周日有一场美国空军的表演,和朋友约好了一起去,但是周六晚上到家已经半夜,周日好不容易挣扎着起床,吃饭,坐地铁,结果还是没赶上看表演。反正已经进城了,不愿意直接回家,临时决定去国家动物园。反正带着孩子带着照相机,齐了。

拍了比较多的动物,女儿也拍了一些,照片也已经放上来了。三儿很乖,全程大部分自己走,到了最后实在坚持不住,在我的肩膀上睡着了,一路回家,我的胳膊和腰都快断了。不过哈拉鲁亚,安全到家就是福。

Zoo trip

5/21/2012

Last Saturday night, I went to a concert with Randy. The kids were at home with our babysitter, Sara. We didn't get home until midnight. It was very hard to get up early Sunday morning, when we decided to go to the air show. Unfortunately, we missed the in bound bus which stopped at 1pm.

玩具店

5/18/2012

对门邻居家有一种橡皮泥,和一般的橡皮泥不一样,永远不会干,而且很容易拿捏。女儿们去她家玩,最喜欢这种橡皮泥。好几次想去买了回来,一直没有机会。终于今天有时间,带上三儿按图索骥去了那家店。可惜没有库存,说厂家也没有,不知道什么时候会有进货。不过那家店的伙计很热心,说我可以留下电话和名字,等他们进货了立马打电话通知我。反正已经来了,我就决定留下来看看。和美国的Toys R us相比,这是一家非常小的玩具店,但是商品不少,而且都很不错。我给女儿买玩具买书虽然不心疼花钱,但是不喜欢乱花钱。很多玩具和其他的玩具相比有异曲同工的作用,我就不会买重复。所以花了很多精力四下看,四下找。

toy store

5/18/2012

Our neighbor has a tub of playdough that never dries out, soft and easy to mold. Every time the girls went to their house, that tub was always the big hit. She told me she got it from a toy store in Oakton, Finally I decided to go there this morning and get some.

绿条和紫条

5/11/2012

三儿很早就决定了她最喜欢的颜色是绿色,每次如果有颜色选择她一定选择绿色。今天去上课,老师发给每个小朋友一根泡沫条,随手抽了一条紫色的给她。她说她要换成绿色的。老师很忙,就问她能不能今天就玩紫色的,下次给她绿色的。她不开心了,一个人跑到旁边就是不愿意和老师还有其他的小朋友一起玩。我对她说没有得到自己想要的东西是很正常的,况且绿色紫色只是颜色不同,如果为了这个原因让自己错过了那么多玩乐的机会很不值得。我还说如果她拒绝上课,我立马带她回家。她想了一想,决定拿着这紫色的泡沫条回去上课。我看着她又蹦又跳的心里很开心,和旁边的妈妈聊了一会儿天。突然一转身,看到她拿着一根绿色的泡沫条。

green noodle vs. purple noodle

5/11/2012

Safrina has decided that her favorite color is green for quite a while. Today at little gym, one of the props that the teacher was giving out during class was those foam noodles that normally are seen at the pool. Safrina got a purple noodle and she wanted to change into a green one.

和印度阿三冲突的教训

4/25/2012

昨天出去买东西,一大早停车场很空荡,我就顺势从中间绕近路。我开车一向很当心,虽然是空空荡荡的停车场,我一边开一边左右看。突然有人鸣喇叭,我把车停下东张西望,看到右前方一个印度女人朝我瞪眼。我大声问为什么,她说我差点儿撞了她。胡说八道的阿三,咖喱吃多了。我还傻乎乎的和她理论,结果她朝我竖中指。她奶奶的腿儿!我跟着她的车继续和她理论,这个阿三又蠢又气,跟她理论简直是浪费时间。结果出商店的路上我又碰到她了,我又跟她理论要求她向我赔礼道歉朝我竖中指。结果被这个阿三教训一通怎么在停车场开车,还说我浪费她的时间。结果我气的当众骂她,有失自己的风度。

The pest today

4/24/2012

I learned my lesson yesterday that I shall never try to reason with a stupid person. Reason No. 1, they won't understand what your point is because they are too stupid; Reason No. 2, it's a waste of time because they are too stupid to know how to apologize.

迪斯尼的猩猩电影

4/22/2012

迪斯尼出了一部新的电影。昨天晚上决定带俩大的丫头去看电影,周末早上6块钱一张票,加上一份爆米花和一杯可乐实在不贵。电影很精彩。小猩猩的妈妈在敌人的攻击中死去那场10几分钟里我哭了个稀里哗啦。片尾结束的时候播了一些制作的艰辛,确实一群人在丛林里呆那么久的时间历尽了千辛万苦制作了这样一部和大猩猩零距离接触的电影。等电影的DVD光盘出来后,我会毫不犹豫地买一张,也算对迪斯尼的支持和鼓励,希望以后多出这样的好电影。盗版光盘绝对不考虑!!
